Curvalicious Canada readies calendar contest
Networking organization Curvalicious Canada has begun a contest promotion to find "curvy Canadian women" to model for its upcoming 2017 calendar. Participants will also appear in a documentary depicting their lives. Beginning Sept. 22, promotional workers will visit eleven Canadian cities to seek potential models. Events will take place in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Saint John, Charlottetown, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax. Consumers can apply online at <http://www.curvycanadadiva.com>.
One winning candidate will also become a spokesperson for the organization and will win a prize package consisting of a car, a necklace, a photo spread in Fashion Addition 14+ magazine, a cover appearance on Canada Plus Magazine and a one-year modeling contract from the Canadian Curves Modeling Agency.
"I personally struggled with being plus-size since the birth of my oldest child 28 years ago," said Tracey Crosson, founder of Curvalicious Canada. "Once being a size six, now I am a size 24. When I was sixteen, I met a guy and had three kids with him. It was a toxic relationship and he was mentally, physically and emotionally abusive. Finally, after seventeen years I left him and I started feeling a lot better about myself, inside and out. I learned the importance of loving myself. Now, eleven years later, I am telling woman my story and teaching them not to settle in any aspect of their lives. This event showcases beautiful, proud, curvy women who will impact the lives of other women through confidence and strength."
Proceeds from the sale of the calendar will go to the Body Conference Canada Awards and the Canadian chapter of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance.
